    Comic Crusaders - Bryan Spaulding Nov 1, 2017

    The Crosswind comic has recently been picked up to be developed for a television series. It's going to end up being your next favorite show. If you've not been reading the series yet, this is only the fifth issue. You've got time to quickly catch up and see what I'm talking about. There are few series I get overwhelmed with joy for, this is one of them. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Nov 7, 2017

    Crosswind #5 is a great, funny, and high-octane read. The characters are lovable, the artwork is rock-solid, and the plot is intriguing. Gail Simone and Cat Staggs put forward some of their best work here, and I cannot recommend it enough. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Nov 1, 2017

    This is a great comic, and the TV show can be just as good. But first, the final issue is coming. Let's see what #TeamCason and #TeamJuniper get up to? This month, I'm TeamJuniper all the way. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 1, 2017

    Cat Staggs' artwork seemed a little off on some pages, but the majority still packed that signature photorealistic style that's made Crosswind one of the best looking titles today. The way this issue played out it almost seemed like the penultimate issue, but with Crosswind set as an ongoing series, it'll be interesting to see what Simon and Staggs have in store past this initial arc.

    Comicosity - Dayna Abel Nov 1, 2017

    Gail Simone has proven to be a trans ally in the past, and certainly one who's willing to listen and learn, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and wait to see how this plays out. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Nov 1, 2017

    This is the weakest issue of the series, but it's still quite good. The final few pages will make anybody want to pump their fists in the air and scream in triumph, but the early focus on Cruz's menace as well as the magic behind the story fell flat for me. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Nov 4, 2017

    'Crosswind' #5 sets the stage for the inevitable confrontation between Juniper, Cason, and Cruz. It continues to be an engrossing piece of fantasy and drama. If you like your comics down and dirty, thoughtful but violent then Simone and Staggs have you covered. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Nov 2, 2017

    Crosswind #5 is lacking when trying to squeeze in the series' long-winded mythology, but the issue finds its strength when exploring Juniper and Cason's character journeys. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Nov 4, 2017

    Bits and PiecesThis is a great title, and a great idea. This isn't a strong issue, and given that I don't care for the art the dip in the writing here, has led to this installment failing to reach the heights of the rest of the arc. It's a poor issue, but I'm still on board for the next one. Read Full Review
